What intrigued Corinne about the man, whose name she later learned was Burt, was that he was with such a fabulous woman.
The woman was Molly, the manager, who’d taken up the post two days before Corinne arrived. She learned this an hour after the arrival, for Burt came onto the porch to smoke.
He and Corinne spoke easily, which is how she learned their names, and the reason why Molly was here.
A bit later, Molly called Burt and he went inside.
Alone, Corinne went to her room for a bit, then emerged to find Molly and Burth eating lunch in the dining room. They invited her to join them.
The conversation was easy and fun.
